New Programs for 2016 in Colonial Williamsburg
Colonial Williamsburg is excited to introduce new and expanded programming coming in the spring 2016.
Candlemaker – 18th-century candlemakers manufacture raw materials and finished products using historic tools and processes.
Carpenter’s Site – Watch how the carpenter uses hand tools to transform trees into lumber, cut and raise the heavy timber frame of a house, then enclose that frame with siding and roofing.
Expanded Gunsmith Shop – Working in a shop near the Capitol, members of the Geddy family were gunsmiths, cutlers, founders, and silversmiths.
New Tailor Shop – Nearly everyone employed the services of a tailor to make and to mend some of their garments. The tailors will be moving to an expanded shop in a new location starting April 4, 2016
Musket Range – Come fire 18th-century firearms at the Colonial Williamsburg Musket Range. Participants will learn the history and become familiar with two 18th-century weapons used during the Revolutionary War.
This is only a partial list. See the complete list of new programming scheduled for the spring of 2016 in Colonial Williamsburg. www.colonialwilliamsburg.com/new/
